Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Rob - wordsmith and otherwise

Just to be clear, I do not not now, never have, and never will have any connection with the entity known as 'Kochman'. I always post as 'robthewordsmith' (well, there was that one time when I... never mind that). Just so you know. Which you did anyway.

One is Rob Koch (AKA Kochman), the other is Rob (who may or may not be an actual 'wordsmith', but will probably 'mark' my post for poor punctuation, crap spelling, some or other English language misdemeanour) somebody-or-other.

The two posters are not related.

It is poor communication by other posters, by responding e.g."Rob... blah, blah,blah" that has caused this confusion.

I propose that the 'wordsmith' should be henceforth known as 'Rab' to eliminate any further confusion.

BTW, I am not Rob Koch.

Yeah no one can quite slap you down and help you up like the 'smith. Unique.

Hustlers though are a dime a dozen.

No, I didn't think he meant that. I thought he meant that I was he as you are he as you are not he but another he as we are all ... OK, cue Emily Litella again. But no, there's a little thing called "writer's voice," and the Smith is certainly distinct :-)

Maybe sometime someone can explain to me what this is all about. I have no idea who Kochman is.

Ring,as far as I know Kochman was the guy who ran another GD website called lost sailors pub,he is accused of posting here under multiple screen names,one being dark starz,the accusations then stretch to his posts being totally fabricated.

Hey! I think I used to try to do that sort of splaining...

But it got too be a bit of a chore, and frankly, I wasn't up to it. I am impressed by the fact that some folks do know their posters so well; I can do what Rosey does, but with some of these others, if it weren't for CLIFF and SBud filling me in, I'd be lost.

But never at the Pub; this is the ONLY site I've ever posted at, save a yr or two hard labor at Dead Hook.

Yes sir WT you were very good in your role and I am by no means trying to take up that slack,but since Ring is so nice and I thought I might be able to clarify things I gave it a shot.I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say it is always good to see you check in here at the forum.

Hey JL--if you don't mind my asking, and sorry if this offends anyone, are you a former "pub poster" (which I wouldn't take offence at anyhow if I were)? I think SBud is (sorry, again), and thus the "insider" knowledge...?

You seem like a fine upstanding sort to me. Strangely, I know that Kman and others have had their issues, but when Kman and I first interacted, though we had a few moments, we settled into a reasonable "relationship" (jeeezz...?) of sorts, talking WWII history and such...never knew why it went South so dramatically, but I can understand how feelings get hurt "here", and then some things were done that shouldn't have been (as I understand it).

WT,I visited the pub site once and it was not to my liking,and I also had one interaction here with Mr. Kochman where I agreed with a point Cliff had made and he berated me as an intolerant,hateful person because I shared an opinion with Cliff on some GD related nonsense.I found him too be an insufferable asshole on many occasions after that.
